Abernethy Staff Conference

by Mike Burn on November 27, 2007

For the final FW booking of 2007 I was invited to lead worship for the staff retreat for the 120 or so team members in the Abernethy Trust, having met the Director, Lorimer, earlier in the year. The Trust does great work from their four centres in Scotland, and is also involved with a number of overseas projects in Brazil, Tanzania and Poland.

It was a great conference, and it was lovely to play again with Paul and Jane Parmenter, and 2 other great musicians, both called Steve.

The conference was held in beautiful surroundings on the Gartmore estate near Loch Lomond, and I enjoyed the chance to escape London for a few days and to spend some time working on new songs. Earlier in the week I had attended the annual UK Worship Songwriters’ Consultation, which always inspires me to write more, and so it was well timed to then have the chance to get on and do it.
